This month we had a wonderful time at Rhonda Bunbury’s property and identified 43 species of birds.

Grey Fantail

Rhonda was delighted that we found a bird she had not seen there before, a very handsome Sacred Kingfisher.

A few days later I saw two at Moggs Creek.

White-naped Honeyeater

We enjoyed walking though a range of habitats, and hearing the glorious songs of a number of Cuckoo species, Rufous Whistlers, Grey Shrike-thrush and English Sklylark.

Unknown nest

Blue-winged parrots and Striated Pardalotes were in abundance and we saw several raptors, as well as two species gathering nest material.

Lunchtime in her most attractive garden was a perfect finish, with various birds entertaining us as they frolicked in her birdbath.
